Truth isn’t Found in the Marketplace
If you allow it, people will be only too glad
to make you jump through hoops
or stand in line in front of their concession stands.
Give them the chance, and they will be only too glad
to take your freedom away
and give you the bill for their time.
Don't play by their rules.
Don't line the pockets of those
who make empty promises to you.
It doesn't matter what they promise:
more wisdom, more love, more abundance,
more peace of mind, more enlightenment.
You already have more than
any of these people can offer you.
You just haven’t claimed it yet.
